The Labour Movement - Edit

Good socialist cafe on the Abbeydale Road. We had a couple of coffees and shared a slice of delicious vegan chocolate cake. Lovely, friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Very relaxed vibes. There’s plenty of vegan options too including a mega breakfast for £7.50. Love it here.

Pros: vegan options , cool location , fab coffee

Cons: some meat items

Great breakfast - Edit

We ate in this quirky, idiosyncratic place in the company of a couple of omnivore friends. Great vegan breakfast, very good coffee. The price is on the high side, but everything is fresh and very well presented. We found the place to be friendly and relaxed; we were made welcome from walking in to waddling out...

Pros: Very good food, Wide range of clearly indicated vegan food, Great bread

Cons: Serves meat

My Favourite Place for Breakfast and Lunch - Edit

When I first became vegetarian a friend took me here for breakfast and it was divine! They offer three all day breakfast options including a vegetarian breakfast and a vegan breakfast, and they're pretty easy going with switching things out. Their vegan sausages are to die for! Best I've had so far and I've gotten similar comments from long time vegans. I'm also very partial to their potato cakes and hash browns. They do have a range of other options, and they do specials on Sunday, I've heard good stuff from other friends but haven't personally tried anything other than the vegan breakfast.

They also do good coffee, and they at least have soy milk although I'm not sure about other dairy alternatives. Not the best coffee I've had in Sheffield (I do love my soy mochas) but it's pretty good. This, coupled with a small but tasty herbal tea collection means I can easily spend a day just chilling out with friends here.

I'm also quite a fan of the atmosphere. The walls are covered in bookshelves, I think they're available to buy or just read whilst you're there. Upstairs there's a small intimate room with a vinyl player and a stack of vinyls as well as a couple instruments.

I basically wish I could just live here!

Pros: Tasty all day vegan breakfast, Decent teas and coffees, Great atmosphere and friendly staff

Cons: Closes at 4, Might be a bit pricy

Would recommend but not the food! - Edit

It's a really cute little cafe and bookshop with a nice vibe to it. The choice of food is different every day with usually two or three different options (most of the time, all of them are vegetarian). The staff are nice but the service is really, really slow and when it comes the food isn't anything special. For this reason I prefer not to eat there but it's a nice place to get a coffee and relax.
